From Pieces to Weight: Once Upon a Time in Southside Queens

The main character is 50 cent and him growing up with his grandma. My favorite part was when he got beat up by this kid and Curtis went crying to his mom, and his mother told him to go back and beat the kid up. I think it a really good book and if you like learn about I choice this book because I like biography books and it fun to learn where famous people came from. A book that has been read but is in good condition. To a lot of people, I may be too young to reflect on life.

Excellent Book to Read This is an Excellent book to read. Influenced by the people around him, he decided to become a drug dealer. The theme of this book is to never give up. Yet even while trying to break into the business, 50 Cent couldn't leave his past behind, wearing bulletproof vests to meetings with record executives and slipping back into the drug trade when his career didn't take off immediately. With this book I learned that the streets does not give a shit about you.

The story revolves around 50 Cent but other charecters in the book are Red, Brian, Sincere, The Godfather, and Grits and Butter. After reading his book, I am amazed at how he has overcome so many struggles. On the other hand, people might think the book is bad because of the things going on, Like how Curtis got to thinking like his mom and started to sell drugs. They are all drug dealers that 50 cent hangs with in his life of drug dealing. It is unclear whether he deliberately chose not to reflect on the events that defined this period, or if he left them out because it did not fit the titular theme, his transition from the crack game to the music business. The movie was obviously fictionalized but this book is supposed to be the truth of growing up in the hood. And this guy is telling the truth.

With money came girls, clothes, cars—and trouble. Curtis started to take the same steps as his mom. I love this book now. I became more aware that life is what you make of it. I was so happy when James knocks him out with a blow of a rock to the back of his head. So after he started making a little more money.

It was dark and men crowded around at the entrance planning to rob him and everything. The spine may show signs of wear. You're right, I just couldn't put the book down. I am from Jamaica, Queens, and 50 cent is from Southside Jamaica, so I thought it was a good fit. He was talking about how he was blessed because his mother got killed.

This book was a very interesting book. I would recommend this book to a friend because if I enjoyed it so much, maybe someone else would too. Maybe not, they would if they were sensible though. I never got to finish all the series but i did read the first 3 and i thought it was worth reading book even though its really long. Pages can include limited notes and highlighting, and the copy can include previous owner inscriptions.
